Weather Forecast for Saturday's Game Does a 360

Recommended Posts

Look at the days.  It's 80% on Friday (ie it's raining then).  If there's rain on Saturday (at 50%), it is carryover, likely in the early morning, then ending.  

 

Game time will be fine.

I never trust a weather forecast until the hour prior to the game. It will be what it is. Just deal with what is in front of you.

I am not worried about it. It will probably be a little colder but a few flurries don’t scare me. Those weather forecast change so much. Half the time when you look at them a week ahead they end up being wrong.

Give it a few days.  It might do a 360, back to 49 and calm.

 

That's the problem playing their style in KC, though.  Rain, sloppy field - perhaps homefield isn't an advantage.

If it's above 40 at gametime, snow shouldn't be accumulating.  They'll have the field covered as well.  It just depends on how much it rains during the game.

i hope it snows or rains im telling you this is not the old colts team with manning . luck plays fine in the rain, and we are built for the rain we have one of the best run defenses in the league and have a great running game and offensive line .   

 

we can stop the run and run it down their throat .  their passing game is their best weapon

Both AFC divisional games on pace to be some crazy weather games. Nice.

To be honest I looked at it. It doesn’t look crazy.  It says less then a inch and most likely by game time will be over. It does look like it might be a middle colder.

Would love love love to see bad weather. That would suits us and our mauling offensive line

Sunday will be a bad day for the guy who does the Chiefs' laundry, however. Lots of mud and grass stains on the backs of their D-Line and LB jerseys, and some nasty stains on the inside of the uniform pants.

Ha... yeah a 360 would be right back to the original forecast. This is what happens when you get old.

Yep. Typical Midwest weather for ya. No one really knows what the weather does in this region until you step outside and check the ole “weather rock”!

I think it's way, WAY too early to be able to predict anything with any certainty.

 

You may be right.    But all anyone is doing at this point is guessing....

Give me feet of rain! I want all the rain possible, because we can run and defend the run very well. KC can't run or defend the run well.

I was just curious yesterday and looked at NE weather it looked ok during the week and then the bad weather came in on the weekend. I was like him the Pats must have their own jet stream. 

I just found it funny. 

I'm not worried about the weather in KC. Colts will be fine.

With Mahomes arm, I dont know that it matters that much. 

It matters a lot. Did you not see Super Bowl XLI?

Weathermen are like lawyers. It's like they can say whatever they want and get away with it....even when they are wrong. 

 

If it's 50 and sunny or 20 and snowing, RUN THAT BALL!!

It certainly bogged down the high powered colts offense at times. Or at least appeared to. Maybe the patriots just knew our plays from filming us and bugging their locker room and it had nothing to do with the weather!

It had got to be harder to throw and catch a wet ball, not to mention run and cut etc. I'd be surprised if mahomes can overcome all of that because he has a good arm but it certainly can happen.

To add to what you mention; timing is thrown off when receivers can't make sharp cuts in their routes due to poor field conditions.  If Wilson & company can press at the line it could completely throw the timing off on the shorter routes.I

 

This is also Mahomes' first playoff game.  A lot of variables on him...

So what's your point??

All weatherman/weatherwomen do IS guess.  The only difference between us and them is they get paid for it, haha.

First playoff game could mean a lot. I mean D. Watson looked like absolute garbage against us and it was his first playoff game. Wouldn't be the first time a rookie gets a bit rattled by his first dose of playoff football.

What's my point?      Seriously?

 

Did you see the post I was responding to?      That poster proclaimed what the weather WILL BE and assured all of us that everything is going to be great.

 

He has no way of knowing that.    He's guessing.     He may be 100 percent right,  but it's not because he knows anything.   

 

Ad no,  professional weather forecasters are NOT guessing.

I did try...I did say "haha" at the end.

No worries, my friend.  Hoping it gets better for you.  You've got a lot of knowledge which has helped me a lot since you've been here.  :thmup:

    • Yeah...I shouldn't have said active. I meant games he has appeared in.   But if you just look at active games...he will have played in more than half...which is still pretty incredible for a guy drafted into the situation he was. 
    • I do agree with Jimmy our owner too. Andrew isn't really being selfish when you remember all the millions of dollars he leaving on the table.   If you're heart's not in the game anymore because your body keeps betraying you, I could see why turning the page to something else seems appealing to Luck. You watch his press conference & can't help but feel for the guy & what he's endured since he first got here in 2012. He raves about Mathis, Wayne, Hilton, Adam V. The guy doesn't have a malicious bone in his body man. He loves INDY & her diehard fans. The guy is genuinely broken up emotionally over this decision man. He didn't reach it lightly at all.    The funny thing about rage & anger is this: It's only a burden to those who carry it & refuse to release it & let it go over time. Fans have a right to be upset just remember that no one was hoodwinked, swindled, or lied to here. The situation was abrupt, unexpected, even awkward perhaps, but I honestly don't think this news was withheld on purpose by anybody inside the Colts organization. Life teaches us to adapt all the time. The only constant is change & our organization will handle this change with professionalism, dignity, & a sense of renewed purpose like we always do. 
    • I am pretty sure he was active for all 16 games plus two playoff games last year.
    • I would guess not.    He honestly looks like a 155 pound incel there who has been on a bender for 3 weeks.
    • Yep...he was yoked before last season...and now almost looks closer to pre-2017 than he did last year. If he has been mulling this decision for months now...I wonder if he kept up his regimen.
